4,700 in 10 months
Regular or comfort seat?

Our bikes will be one month old next week so we are on track for our average of 5-7,000 for a year or season.
I don't know where we are... but I have been lost here before...

2800 miles in 2 months, I think the seat foam is too soft, you can press it down with your fingers. On later F800s the seat was like a plank but offered good support even after a few hours on the bike. I also find I tend to slide towards the tank after a few hours so it could also do with a re shape.

I've got an airhawk inflatable i take on long rides. Don't always need to use it, but they are very good, and very affordable. I had a Sargent comfort seat on my R1200GSA which was really great, but extremely expensive, especially to get down to here in NZ.
